After picking this image, I uploaded it to the pic2pat.com. The site allows you to created a cross stitch pattern out of your own photo. Once printed I used my colored pencils to get an idea where colors should go. Then I cut up the paper pattern to create templates for each applique piece.
Thanks to Project Quilting, I am really learning to take chances. As one other participant said, an opportunity to create proof of concept. Who knew, I could make an applique quilt, who in my opinion, really looks like my friend.
